About meI am a photographer and a bit of a poet-type writer, too. Reading is a great pleasure to me; especially, now days.

For many years now, I have had sleep apnea. It was only within the last 3 years that I finally had it diagnosed and treated. And in spite of being a skinny kid growing up, I had it back in my schooling days, too. So, because of this, I am doing a lot of rereads with a vigor I had never experienced before. I feel very grateful about that.

About my libraryI love books and I collect them for that reason.

There is no real way of describing my library except to say it is an extension of my addiction for ideas, imagination, and information. Most of what I own is stuff that looked interesting to me at the time. I indulge in classics, contemporary literature (postmodernism), art (surrealism especially), reference (factoids), and so many other things that I love to pore over. I even go to used bookstores (where I get most of my books) to relax and unwind from a stressful day at work.
